Endourological treatment of bilateral ureteral stones in bilateral ureteral duplication with right ureterocele.
Bilateral collecting system duplication is a very rare abnormality, including the splitting of the ureteric bud. Complete ureteral duplication with two separate openings in the urinary bladder is also extremely rare. To the best of our knowledge, we

Ureteropelvic obstruction and renal stones: etiology and treatment.
The simultaneous surgical management of ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) with concomitant renal stones has evolved the last 20 years; hence, the ideal minimally invasive technique is still controversial. Laparoscopic and robot-assisted lapar

Trends in the Management of Small Renal Masses: A Survey of Members of the Endourological Society.
Treatment modalities for small renal masses (SRMs) include open or minimally invasive radical or partial nephrectomy, and laparoscopic or percutaneous ablations. Members of the Endourological Society were surveyed to evaluate how practitioner and cli

Retrograde intrarenal surgery for the treatment of renal stones: is fluoroscopy-free technique achievable?
The aim of this study was to present the safety and efficacy of retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) procedures that minimize the intraoperative radiation exposure. The totally endoscopy-guided RIRS technique included the following steps: (a) preoper

On the origin of calcium oxalate monohydrate papillary renal stones.
Calcium oxalate monohydrate (COM) papillary calculi can be initiated by subepithelial calcification of the renal papillae. Hydroxyapatite disruption of the papillary epithelial layer can become the nidus of a COM papillary calculus. This study evalua

Androgens involvement in the pathogenesis of renal stones formation.
The potential role for the gonadal steroids in the pathogenesis of urolithiasis, higher mean of plasma oxalate concentration and kidney calcium oxalate deposition influenced by androgens in men has been proposed. In this study, the serum levels of st
